Commetary on the Word of Life: «Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.» (LK 3:4)
Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. (Lk 3:4)
During this season of Advent we are invited to live a new Word of Life. The evangelist Luke takes it from the book of Isaiah, the prophet of consolation. For the first Christians it was a reference to John the Baptist, who came before Jesus.
In the time leading up to Christmas, the Church presents us with the figure of the Forerunner, John the Baptist, and invites us to rejoice, because he is like the herald of the King who is about to come.
The time is near when God will fulfil his promises, forgive sins and grant salvation.
